The Food of Bird*.
The practical utility of birds as agents
for the destruction of noxious insects can
hardly be overestimated. But their agency,
by the great majority of farmers, is gener
ally overlooked or considered too lightly.
If such would only study the habits of
birds and insects they would discover the
important part which each plays in the
economy of nature; and history itself
proves that any interference with their re
lations to each other is sure to be followed
with disastrous results. Nature, if left
to herself, establishes a wholesome balance
a mong her creatures; that is, t-he produces
no more of one species than shall be kept
in check by another . If there is an insect
which feeds upon a certain plant there is
also a bird which destroys the insect and
an animal which devours the bird, and so
on up the scale, each curbing the undue in
crease of the next inferior creature. It
is when man interferes with the working
of this law that results are sure to follow
which are disastrous . Take for instance
the silkworm, which feeds upon the foliage
of the mulberry tree and spins the cocoon
which in its manufacture furnishes profit
able employment to many men, women
and children, and brings in large revenues
to the country. Insects we must thank for
honey, the sweetest of sweets; the air we
breathe and the water we drink are kept
pure and wholesome by the agency of
myriads of little creatures which draw
sustenance from the impurities of the ele
ments. A study into the lives and purposes
of insects convinces the student that it
would not be good policy to destroy them
entirely, even if we had the power; but it
is well to keep them in check if possible.
In regard to the fertility of birds and in
sects, the majority of birds have but one
brood of young in the course of the year;
a few have two or three. In the case of
the smaller insect-eating birds, the number
of eggs to a brood is on an average not
more than five. Some of the larger birds,
as the various Gallinae, lay from five or
six to twenty eggs to a brood. On the
>ther hand, the reproductive energy of in
sects is truly marvelous. A single pair of
»rain weevils will produce 6,000 young
between April and August. The common
varieties of aphides, or plant lice, which
ire found on almost all plants, are pro
luced in spring from eggs laid the season
before, and through the summer only fe
males are developed. At the last of the
season males and females both appear,
and eggs are laid for the brood which
latches early in the spring. Reaumer
;ays that one individual in one season may
become the progenitor of 6,000,000,000.
The silkworm moth produces about 500
eggs; the great goat moth about 1 000, and
so on down to the white ant?, one of which
deposits not less than sixty eggs a minute,
giving 3,600 in an hour With this won
derful power of xr >duction the question
arises what shall prevent them from over
running the country? Various causes
operate to check undue increase of insects,
chief of which is the appetite and instinct
which a wise Providence has given to birds.
If the number of eggs produced by insects
is astonishing, the number destroyed by a
single bird i-» no less si. A woodcock will
eat its own weight of infects in a single
night; a pair of sparrows will destroy
3.360 caterpillars in a week. '. A brood of
partridges will nearly exterminate the
denizens of an ant-hill in a couple of days.
All birds of those that live mostly on insects
arj constantly employed iv destroying in
sects and their egg?. Birds are more
common prey to mankind than insects, and
as a matter of couise insects are on the in
crease and birds on the decrease, and thi9
will continue to be the case, unless birds
are protected, until eventually insects will
destroy everything that grows. Herewith
we give the names of a few birds that de
stroy insects: Humming "birds, swifts,
whippourwilb, night hawks, flycatchers,
thrust-its, blue birds, wood inhabited, tit
mice, nuthatches, creepers, wrens, warb!erp,
swallow?, chatterers, starlings, oriole?,
blackbirds, crows, herons, snipes, etc.
Of all the bird? that are useful, perhaps
tht) crow and the robin have been, the most
discussed by farmer?, some contending
that fach does more rural than good, and
vice versa. The fact, is that the crow does
really more harm in destroying the eggs of
insect- eating birds than he does directly
to the farmer. There is no rose without
its thorn. We must take the bitter with
the sweet. Bat let us bear in mind that it
is to oar advantage to protect the birds.
San Francisco Chronicle.
An acre of sweet corn for feeding to
swine will afford a good return in pork
folly equal in money value to any use
to which the corn could have been applied.
They are very fond of the stalks as well as
the ears of corn, and will eat all up clean.
If given to hogs fed upon corn principally,
it serves to give them a relish for their
other food, improves their healthfulness
and increases their flesh. When hogs have
been kept at pasture on clover sweet corn
may be used to follow the clover, as they
will eat enough of it to make them grow
thriftily.— N. Y. Herald.
